Nearly 75 percent of the metal framing has been completed at the new 6,700-square-foot Lorain County Health and Dentistry site on South Main Street in Oberlin.

Workers are now finishing installation of asphalt, exterior bricks, concrete, and rooftop units.

Ground was broken in September and the health care facility is scheduled to open in March.

When complete, it will offer general care, pediatric health care, dentistry, and behavioral health services.

The site is expected to employ 16 to 20 staff members.

LCHD outreach and volunteer coordinator Rebecca Shaw said to expect appointment scheduling and announcements about services to come before the facility opens.

The health clinic has already opened a temporary mobile medical unit at Depot Park on South Main Street, where patients two to 19 years old can be seen Tuesday through Thursday while construction is underway.
